How you can help the YWCA

Make your voice heard! Are you a sexual assault survivor? Did you grow up experiencing domestic violence? Or are you passionate about issues of consent and assault?

  • We’d love to hear your perspective, and possibly share it on our website. You can do this anonymously. Or check with your campus newspaper. They might welcome an editorial.
  • Share your ideas for making our community safer for everyone.
  • Share your ideas for helping victims of sexual and gender-based violence know about the YWCA as a resource for help and support.

Get involved with planning our annual SA awareness month. Here are ideas from the National Sexual Violence Resource Center:
